The Balenciaga Bench Debacle

For the first time in the history of fashion the front row was made to stand after receiving seated tickets! As they say in show business, “the show must go on” and that’s exactly what happened yesterday in Paris as the benches at Balenciaga started collapsing while guests filled the front row. Due to health and safety precautions, invitees were asked to stand throughout the show! The front row included some seriously big players including Anna Wintour, Hamish Bowles, Grace Coddington, Salma Hayek,  François-Henri Pinault and Catherine Deneuve. The PRs backstage must have been losing their minds with worry. But thankfully the world waits for Balenciaga. All of the designer’s guests happily stood and watched as a beautiful season was revealed. {image source: Harper’s Bazaar UK Twitter}
